It is a widely believed opinion that children of popular stars and celebrities more often than not begin life behind the eight ball. This means that the celebrity status of their parents, in most cases, casts such a huge shadow over the child’s life that they may find themselves battling for recognition of their own despite their efforts and achievements. This is especially so when they find themselves in similar career paths and professional spaces as their celebrity parents.
It is therefore little wonder that while Molly Evangeline Goodman in her own right is an excellent producer, production assistant, script editor, and one of the most versatile behind scenes coordinators in Hollywood, she is known more as the daughter of veteran Hollywood actor, John Stephen Goodman, and his wife of over 30 years, Anna Beth.
Like her father John Goodman, the 31-year-old Molly is thriving in Hollywood as she has managed to build a blossoming career with a lot of prospects and opportunities for advancement in such a short period of time. Unlike him, however, she is doing it all behind the scenes instead of being in front of a camera.
